A&E JUNE 2016 • 55 Sandcarving To get started, I took some butcher paper with me and made a rubbing of each door panel, carefully labeling each and noting from which side of the door it was made. We also had two of the broken panels: one of the originals and one re-make. From the rubbing, we made an accurate drawing that we then had a company scan for us so that we could make the template for the glass panels to be ordered. The glass company we dealt with could not work from a scan but wanted an actual template. In the past, I would have made a rubbing from the design as well, but nowadays, we proceed a little different. Damian, from our graphics department, took several pic- tures with his high-resolution camera and imported the design into Adobe Illustrator. He could then work on rep- licating the design while we waited on the glass pieces to be made.
